Latency is only CAS 6 but at stock setting the difference is usually negligible.
#2

#3
Very cheap, just what I need!!
#4
Terrible latency for DDR2, but needs must I guess...

It's essentially the access time for the memory. But normally just having more system ram massively out ways the tiny advantage of lower latency ram.

i'd be embarrassed to ask! especially on the internet with access to search engines.

I wonder if GeIL (Golden Emperor International Ltd) products are popular in Germany???
The word geil means horny in german!

Good find Agharta :)
#10
Ordered this and it arrived yesterday. Turns out it's actually CAS5, not 6. It's installed and working nicely :)

Does it look the same as in the photo?
#12
Thanks just ordered this, didn't know whether to get this or the other 4GB black dragon version at PC2-5300. This was a better saving plus led for dragon eyes looks tacky haha! :) Will let you know what I get, don't know why this isn't hotter? Can't find any ram this cheap :S
#13
That latency wont make a massive difference to anyone except enthusiasts.
For 99% of the population it will be fine for anything from word processing to slaughtering your enemies on the battlefield.

Nice find.
#14
nice find shame its not DDR3
#15
As mentioned previously the timings are dire. I've lost track of RAM pricing lately but i think its gone up a huge amount in the last few months (i bought 4gb crucial ballistix tracer for £38) so may be some value in the deal.

not quite pointless as i stated that it was a nice find and meerly said that it was a shame it wasnt DDR3 ...... i never said anything about either of them fitting any board at all ....so i think your comment is pointless as you are just trying to be a clever clogs but look a complete tool

dont worry mate, deals like this brings the geek brigade out in force (me included) and i would be completely amazed if this thread didnt turn out to be an internet d1k waving contest somewhere down the line.

I run a business network and have built and managed many PC's for about 10 years now. Geil lifetime warranty isn't worth a carrot and the quality is poor. I have had approx 50% of our Geil memory fail memtest on me when analysing misbehaving systems. To get it replaced you need to send recorded delivery to Taiwan at your own cost. They then never have the product you purchased and instead offer you a vastly inferior version.

My last swap out was value DDR400 for top of the line DDR550 2 years ago, despite it being over three times as expensive when purchased. Even more annoying as that was from a home machine of my own. Contacted them recently with some faulty 512MB DDR2 modules and the shipping cost was more than the value of the item, that is presuming they didn't blame me for the problems. Kingston were similar last time I tried to return some of their Value RAM so avoid them too now.

Best RMA by a country mile is Crucial, sent to UK and replaced within a few day. They have replaced pretty much like for like even unusual PC133 laptop memory that they haven't sold for years. Probably about a 10% failure rate over the 4-5 year average PC life we have here so not bad at all. Recently I have used a fair bit of Crucial and OCZ with no faults so far too, but couldn't comment on their returns procedures.

+1 on Crucial - they are fab. I had some mem fail about 3 years after purchase and they sorted the swap quickly and covered all costs.

I also had a stick of Geil memory fail on me recently. Didn't bother to look at returning it. Glad I didn't now reading your post.
#27
good find, haven't seen 4gb ddr2 800 branded memory for under £60/70 for a while now.
#28
Hot for the name alone! Geil means horny in Dutch:roll:
#29
I agree , better to pay more for lifetime warranty that is uk based

Well! were all different, and we all have our strenght's and weekness's! and i'm sure we all have our specialist subjects to which we know more on than others. This happends not to be mine .. But fortunatly for me I dont mind asking... Thanks for your observation..

Pretty much - the same silver covers.

Label on the box says:

GX24GB6400DC
PC2 6400 800MHz
CL 5-5-5-15
2GB x 2 DC Kit

Great price for DD2 that has seen a massive price-hike recently.

Been happy using Geil RAM (value and premium) for many years along with Corsair and others.

Usually go for Geil because they have a great performance/price balance.

I had been using 4gb of Geil Black Dragon DDR2800 RAM flawlessly for 2 years until I upgraded to an i7 and DDR3 1850 last month, it's cheap and fast, and can't really comment on the returns policy, but if I have the same RAM in my machine 2 years down the line then I'm doing something wrong. . .

If you use a good quality power supply and have decent cooling, then if your RAM lasts a fortnight it should last for years . . . . .

Most of it does, just in my experience Geil is one of the few were that is fairly often not the case. Combined with a poor returns situation means I avoid them now.

not really, you look the tool for your irrelevant post. hwo was your information useful to anyone? it probably only confused the not-so-tech minded into thinking that they might need ddr3 or something.

its like seeing a deal for tetley tea and saying "shame its not nescafe gold blend" -means absolutely nothing.

jog on your retarded labotomized gibbon.

Will these fit in any PC that takes DDR2 ram? I am just replacing the 4 gig ram in my original dell setup for 8 gig of this, would that work ok?

Yup should be fine really, unless your desktop takes SODIMM [200 pin] Laptop ram? Also it can't hurt to check with your mother manufacturer to see if it's compatible.

Although correct me if i'm wrong but ram is ram unless they've had a strange design process which could put the ram/mobo at risk?

Its just a normal dell, inspiron 545. So I should be ok then?
